A One-Time Only Major Event:
Concert Performance of
The Tibetan Book of the Dead
Acclaimed Tibetan singer-songwriter Tenzin Choegyal
With narration by Lama Surya Das and Lama Tsultrim Allione
The evening, which explores how we can prepare for the mind’s journey from the body, features a performance by Tenzin Choegyal and live narration by Lama Tsultrim Allione and Lama Surya Das.
Using selected text from a classic work of Buddhist wisdom, The Tibetan Book of the Dead, this concert pairs sacred words with musical meditations to provide insight into the Bardo, or the intermediate state between life and death.
Tenzin Choegyal’s international award-winning music has been described as “beautifully evocative,” “healing,” “mesmerizing,” “spine-tingling,” and “transcendent.” His music reflects his nomadic roots and his love for his homeland, Tibet. His cantering rhythms, soaring vocals and exquisite flute solos have enchanted audiences around the globe.
